We’re excited to announce the beta release of our brand-new AI PDF Summarizer integrated into Xodo – AskPDF!
In this groundbreaking release, we're adding powerful AI capabilities to our PDF Editor. Imagine getting an accurate summary of your PDF content and getting answers to your questions within seconds.
AskPDF is your personal AI PDF assistant, ready to enhance your PDF experience as you view, annotate and edit your PDF files. And we can’t wait to show you what it can do!
Before we get into the big reveal, please note that AskPDF is in Beta release, so you must sign up for a free Xodo account to enjoy exclusive access to this feature in full. But don’t worry – you can still get a limited look at what AskPDF has to offer first.
Ready to chat with your documents? Let's give it a go!
Once you’re signed in as a free user with Xodo, it’s easy to get started with AskPDF.
1. Simply go to Xodo’s PDF Editor.
2. Click on the Ask PDF button in the bottom right-hand corner.
3. Ask your question about your PDF.
4. Get your PDF summary response.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4, asking any additional questions you may have.
The new AI PDF Summarizer works exactly like you’d expect it to where you type in your prompts, questions, and queries and you receive a response almost instantly.
Right out of the gate, AskPDF comes with some advanced AI features that’ll help you better understand your PDFs. With AskPDF, you can:
Let’s get a closer look at your new PDF AI assistant!
With a simple question about your document, you can get a quick, concise, accurate summary of your PDF content.
Simply type in a prompt like “What is this PDF document about?” and you’ll get a synopsis within seconds. Perfect for quickly scanning long PDFs and getting that first glance over its content.
You can literally interview and ask our PDF Summarizer direct questions about the content of your PDF file and get answers on the spot.
This can be an effective research trick to start getting the information you need without getting lost in the content of dense PDF text. All it takes for AskPDF to speed up your research is a specific question.
Need to see the actual page AskPDF is mentioning? AskPDF is advanced enough to reference the responses it provides you with and includes links to the source pages in your PDF.
Click on the reference links provided by AskPDF in the chat window and you'll instantly be directed to the specific page with the information you need.
No two PDFs are alike and so it makes sense that each chat you have with individual PDFs is different. Once you close out of a PDF, your AI PDF chat history chat clears.
So be sure to copy your chat history by clicking on the copy icon so you can paste and retain that information in a document or notepad.
You then get to start from scratch with a clean slate and focus your chat on a new PDF separately. Stay organized, efficient, and avoid the confusion of which responses belong to which PDF.
To help you quickly dive in, AskPDF starts you off with some ideas on how to start digging into your document. So if you’re new to the world of using AI on your PDFs, you can quickly try out some of our suggestions to get your feet wet.
Generate a summary, list keywords, or find out what the main goal of the document is. Whichever suggestion you try, you can get a good feel for how the AI PDF chat works on your PDFs.
To get you off on the right foot with AskPDF as your PDF assistant, we’ve got a few tips that can make all the difference with your AI PDF user-experience. Here are a few things you can do to ensure you get the best results:
From quick queries to deep dives into your document, AskPDF is your new go-to PDF tool to get the hard part of your work done. Join up with Xodo as a free user and sign in to see AskPDF in action!
Remember that this new feature is still in beta, so you’ll experience issues here and there. However, it will improve and get more advanced once fully released.
